Can't tell the weight savings as hatch are partially supported by the hinges and force of struts on the original glass. That said the 410/430 hatch feels as light as a feather, under 6-8 lbs to lift so assuming half weight goes to the hinges about 15 lbs.

410 Sport / GT430 parts are now for sale. I ordered the GT430 A-panels through (https://www.shop.britishracinggroup.com/main.sc) and received in about 1 month. GT430 front and rear bumper were quoted and are about 6 8 week time frame.

Front & rear bumpers, 'A' Panels, and an access hatch inspired by the 430 will be available from HethelSport shortly!!! There's a rogue picture floating around but the final production pieces are still to be unveiled so we don't have pictures yet... all we have are some not-so-exciting placeholder webpages and preliminary pricing. I would expect the first sets will be complete kits followed by individual pieces.


If you're interested, shoot me an email ([email protected]) and I'll put you on the newsletter & announcement list.

I may have to bite on the louvers from a functional viewpoint. My sail panel is cracked so it would be ideal to replace that also. Anybody know the weight difference between a fiberglass sail/louver, and the CF option. Problem is, if I get into CF, the A panels need to be replaced...This is a track car, not a pretty boy. Hethelsport, if you are out there, I'd love to know weight savings of glass v fiberglass, v CF. May end up being Santa's present!
Julian, sounds like A Panels are 3+lbs lighter CF v stock roughly Did not think they were that heavy to begin with!

Guys someone did weigh the glass v louvers. Saw it on my tablet a day or so ago but can't find it now. It is down to gregs and Hethelsport for me unless HK Fever is still in the game....then again, with all the unrest over there?????

I changed them for shape not weight savings, I wanted the vented panels but didn't care for the vaned versions from Technocraft etc.
